Abstract:

Collection of 115 items, bound together in one volume, and written mainly in the hand of John Browne, but with numerous items in other hands. The entries primarily address Parliamentary activities, particularly in the House of Lords, including several extracts from Parliamentary journals; lists of Parliamentary bills; a copy in Browne's hand of King Charles I's speech at dissolving Parliament in 1640; speeches by Charles II; and records of payments to Parliamentary officers. Other items include a satire on the Earl of Pembroke by Michael Oldisworth and several non-Parliamentary accounts and receipts.

Numerous items also concern Browne's own interests and affairs, including accounts for the levying of coat and conduct money in Middlesex, dated July 22, with a list of names, amounts due, and their excuses for not paying; a list of ships; a marriage settlement between Elizabeth, daughter of John Browne, and Toby Chancey; and a letter to a Mr. Budd accusing him, along with his master, of been spreading lies about him.

The volume concludes with four legal documents in Spanish, embossed with the Gonzaga seal.
